Best vietnamese food in Bellingham with friendly family always welcoming! Everything is fresh and the portions are big. I would highly recommend. Note that they are closed on Sunday.

Nice little family run restaurant. Friendly staff and the food is good. Another choice for us when we want Vietnamese food.

We have been back many times and noticed that things have begun to slide downhill. The Pho is still very good, but Mr. Ly needs to serve his noodles piping hot, this last time my wife's Pho was lukewarm, she couldn't even blanche her Basil nor her Pea Sprouts in the lukewarm broth that was served. Worse still, the he's... More

A small place in a strip-mall with plenty of parking. We come here regularly, the very kind owner of course recognizes us like he does most of his patrons as there are very many regulars here. He also remembers that we almost invariably try their hot beef-noodle pho and it is absolutly stunning, the best we have ever had, and... More

We've been to countless Pho restaurants up and down the west coast of North America from California to British Columbia, Canada over the last decade or two. Pho Ly in Bellingham ranks right up there at the top of the list, the only time they fell short was early one day about a year ago when we went just after... More

I had lunch here twice and both were great. The service was quick, though they don't seem to understand English very well, just enough.. The place itself probably need some touch-ups here and there. I had a very good beef noodle soup. SO GOOD!

We've been going here consistently for 8yrs. It's our favorite place during the dark, cold, winter Bellingham weather. Family run & each order cooked fresh from scratch. Really large servings with lots of fresh condiments included. It is noisy & the lighting is a little too bright. Service is a little slow & inattentive- to be expected at a 'mom-n-pop... More

The food is great and at a very good price but the service is non existent. The place is extremely dirty but the owners are nice. But the food makes you forget all of its shortfalls.
